That’s all there is to it, right?
Wrong, actually. Boxing is much more than just a sport. It is a perfect reflection of our life’s journey. It represents everything that we face in the course of living. And boxers are not just sportsmen. They are models of inspiration.
“Getting hit motivates me. It makes me punish the guy more. A fighter takes a punch, hits back with three punches.”
Isn’t this how we all want to feel about the challenges in life? Life’s journey is not a smooth one. At every point, some negativity happens or some difficulty challenges us. The easy option is to surrender and accept defeat. But those who are successful don’t surrender. They accept the challenge and give a tough fight to emerge victoriously.
So, a boxing ring isn’t just a sporting arena. It is a representation of our life with all its challenges. One of the boxers is you – and the other one represents life’s obstacles. Here are some important life skills that everyone can learn from boxing:
- Successful boxing is all about maintaining proper balance in the ring. It helps to create a sound foundation for you and to make your ground strong. As a boxer, you need to maintain proper balance when you hit and evade blows. In life as well, we need to maintain a balance in everything that we do – between our professional and personal entities, in our diet, in our thought processes, etc. Then it becomes tough for the challenges to defeat us.
- Taking a hit now and then is not a crime. Winners in boxing matches get hit and it hurts. Even the greatest boxers have taken hits in the ring and bled. And while it hurts, it also increases the boxer’s determination to keep going and his/her alertness to avoid the next hit. We can hit from so many areas in life – professional, financial, personal, etc. But the strength of character lies in how we handle these hits. From boxing, we learn to overcome the pain and bounce back into the fight.
- Boxers spend long hours in physical and mental preparation before they step into the ring. Even if the number one boxer in the world comes to a fight unprepared, he/she is bound to face defeat. We need to prepare ourselves for challenges at every stage of life. Consider every day as the first day of the rest of your life and prepare well for all the activities that you have to perform.
- Even the best boxer can’t make it alone. He/she needs support – from the coach, teammates, peers, etc. No matter how skilled or confident you are, you can’t be successful all alone. A strong support system acts as a barrier against many adversities and also helps to keep you grounded.
So, there’s so much to learn from boxing and apply it to our lives. Watch the sport for enjoyment, but also absorb the learning that the bouts provide.
This quote from the character Rocky Balboa of the Rocky film series sums it up – “It ain’t about how hard you can hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.”
